About Kent Police
Kent Police is responsible for policing an area which stretches north to Dartford and Swanley and west to Edenbridge and Tunbridge Wells. The county covers a number of cities and towns with large areas of sprawling Kent countryside in between.
As well as dealing with crime and disorder, Kent Police's geographic location - between London and Europe - means they have a part to play in both national and international policing. They're the main gateway to Europe through three major ports, the Channel Tunnel, a number of airfields and Lydd airport.
Kent Police also police one of the most significant coastlines and busiest road networks in the country which includes the M25, M2/A2 and M20.
The Kent Police Community Safety Units (CSUs) deal with local crime and safety issues. They aim to create a safe environment for you by reducing crime and anti-social behaviour. Working alongside your local PCSO, the CSUs have an important role in community policing.
Officers in the CSUs work alongside staff from other agencies including district councils. And there';s also a Local District Policing Team. This is a group of officers who:
- respond to requests for assistance
- investigate local crime
- carry out patrols
Kent Police consists of three geographical divisions:
- The North Division policing area covers the Dartford, Gravesham, Medway and Swale districts.
- The East Division policing area covers the Ashford, Folkestone, Hythe, Canterbury, Dover and Thanet.
- The West Division policing area covers the Maidstone, Sevenoaks, Tunbridge Wells and Tonbridge & Malling.
